Statutes and Regulations
Alaska Statutes are passed by the legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the board to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.
AS 08.62 and regulations 12 AAC 56 specifically govern marine pilotage. AS 08.01 - 08.03 and regulations 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.
Proposed regulations are advertised in Alaska newspapers and we invite public comment on them. If you would like to receive notice of proposed regulations, please write to the regulations specialist and request that your name be added to the Board of Marine Pilots interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish your name removed from the mailing list.
